Madelyn Stewart knows how to have fun, no matter what her ex-husband claims, but between working two jobs and taking care of her five-year-old son, opportunities for fun are few and far between. So when she is given tickets to take her son to see a live taping of the MyHeartChannel show Take a Chance, they go, even though it means she’ll have to stay up all night to turn in her latest article on time. To her shock, the daredevil star, Chance Risk, is none other than Graham Sawyer, the quiet accounting major she’d dated in college—someone she’d cowardly broken up with by note and hoped to never see again. When she makes a major mistake on her article, she has to swallow her embarrassment and reach out to Chance for an exclusive or risk losing her job.

Chance Risk doesn’t talk to reporters. Not after the way he’s seen them destroy his brother’s marriage and career. But Take a Chance is starting to lose viewers, he’s desperate. Despite his better judgment, when Madelyn reaches out, he can’t resist the opening to figure out why she broke his heart eight years before. His only condition: she has to come to three filming locations with him and his crew to get a real sense of what the show is about.

Swept up in adventure, they start to feel the chemistry from college rekindling. But the reason Madelyn left eight years before still looms between them. If Chance can’t convince Madelyn to take a chance on love, she’ll walk away again. This time forever.

My Review

TAKE A CHANCE ON ME is a fun, heartfelt story of one woman's fear of losing control and the man who made her risk things in the past, brought together by chance and her adorable son. The characters are sure to charm readers, just as the romance is sure to bring plenty of humor and swoon-worthy moments. An enjoyable read for sweet romance fans!

I loved that these characters weren't perfect. They also weren't cookie-cutter. Madelyn feels fairly stuck in her life in a rundown apartment working as a waitress to get by and doing some side journalism, which is her dream. Her only bright spot is her son, who brings so much to this story. I loved how spot on his character was and how adorable he is. I loved his hero worship of Chance and love of animals and the outdoors. I have two boys that are equally enamored by things like this, so it was easy to relate. I also could easily relate to Madelyn who wants to control the things she can in her life and has never had it easy. Then there's Chance... he is so charismatic and adventurous... really everything Madelyn is not. He's also matured and found his place since they last knew each other, which to me, made things work between them.

I loved, loved the chemistry! The author did a fabulous job in creating these sweet moments between them with just a touch or a look or a word. I didn't have to be told things as a reader because I could see and feel them for myself through these characters.

In the end, was it what I wished for? If you're looking for a sweet romance with plenty of depth and heart and a sweet boy that will charm you as much as the leading man, definitely grab this one!
